HC Deb 09 November 1950 vol 480 c85W
84. Major Poole

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he is aware that the rule forbidding any reference in the explanatory note on a Statutory Instrument to anything not in the Instrument makes it difficult for the note to explain correctly and precisely to laymen what the document means; and if he will consult with the editor of Statutory Instruments with a view to amending the rule.

Mr. Jay

I am not aware of any general rule of the nature described in the Question.
